Melt energetics at high temperature and pressure

Martin C. Wilding, Alexandra Navrotsky

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The silicate melt properties were investigated at high pressure and temperature. The dissolution of melt components, which are readily soluble in silicate solvents and which have larger heat effect, was used to determine the dependence of the activities of these components on melt structure. In addition, the high temperature calorimetric data was used in combination with solution calorimetric data at lower temperatures to evaluate the temperature-dependent stability of these melt species.
